The National Chicken Council (NCC)’s 2017 Wing Report, released last week, estimates Americans will eat 1.33 billion chicken wings during Super Bowl LI this weekend. So the team at Hurricane Grill & Wings, a beach-themed full service restaurant franchise, had to ask: “What’s the best dip for your chicken wings? Ranch or Bleu Cheese?” And boy, did Hurricane Grill & Wings fans respond!
More than 2,650 Hurricane Grill & Wings fans responded to a Facebook-hosted survey between January 23 and February 1, 2017 that asked participants to choose their favorite dipping sauce between traditional favorite Bleu Cheese and newcomer Ranch. It was a super close contest, but with a final vote of 52% to 48%, Ranch was the winner!
Ranch: 1,390 (52%)
Bleu: 1,272 (48%)
All participants in the vote were automatically entered for their chance to win takeout from Hurricane Grill & Wings for the big game on Sunday, February 5, 2017. The winner will be notified this week.
